After building and flying the Nemesis I knew I would have to build another 2.5. This time I used the Radical Micro frame paired with the little powerhouse 1106 SS motors. I am now officially hooked on micros...

Awesome!
What kv are your motors?
How arr you powering your vtx?

Hi Booda, I'm running the 6500kv. After checking it turns out I'm using a VTX03 on this build. lol So power is off the 5v on the front of the FC...But if I had run the AKK I would have ran it straight off the Batt.

Sweet color combo! diggin it! +1 on mwm's comment. Lol. How many flights on the sunny's? My bearings were loud out of the box and after 5-6 flights there was noticeable play in the shafts. Still fly like beasts though, great low end on 3s and 2.5".

Thanks doc! I only have a few flights on the SS motors. I hope they hold up as well as the little EMax's on the Nemesis X. I must be getting close to a 100 packs on her and she is still rocking hard.

But you have an issue during Spring: you can not crash it on the pretty blossomed tree at the photo or it will be lost forever! XP

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
